Sleep Changes

Since school resumed my Fitbit is telling me I’m getting between four and five hours of sleep instead of the six to seven hours I was getting over the summer. With the exception of yesterday, when it says I woke at 4 a.m. and didn’t track my last hour of sleep, I have been getting about five. Which is not enough, and I feel it. Right now, even with coffee, my eyes are tired and I am very at risk of working myself into a cold, or worse.

THBT! I say.

I need to get to bed earlier, which means I need to start writing sooner after the kids go to bed instead of relaxing a bit more. Generally, I get enough decompression from work between dinner and the kid’s bedtime without taking more. I just don’t want to get too far behind on “my shows”!

Still, I did some severe editing on what I ended up watching last night, skipping people who I thought were favorites and ignoring a lot of the stuff I was merely interested in, and I still lived.

These words aren’t going to write themselves.

1,233 fiction words, 1,424 total words

Still not done with 005, the short story I started two Sundays ago. It’s only going to be 10,000 words. It should not take this long.

Must. Write. Faster.
